Reading to Syrian Refugees in South Devon

I recently read my children’s picture book ‘Donna and Dermot on the Move’ to Syrian refugee children living in South Devon. Some had only been here for  year and as the book is about the upheaval of moving, they could really relate to it. The book’s message is about living in the now as the best way to appreciate what you have rather than feeling anxious or depressed by thinking about the future or past.

The children created some striking artwork later, based on the book. Thanks to Integr8 for making this possible.
